The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper Kwesi Pratt Jnr has said, President directive on private funerals with a maximum of 25 mourners does not make any common sense.

According to Mr. Pratt Jnr who was speaking on “Alhaji and Alhaji” on Pan African TV monitored by Apexnewsgh.com, all the directives the president gave during his televised national addresses on COVID-19 to Ghanaians on measures to prevent the spread of the deadly Coronavirus “do not make sense at all”.

“Funerals are being organized in the churches at church services where you have 200, 300, 400 people congregating. So, that restriction of funerals to 25 people, how does it apply when the funerals can be organized at church services in churches which have more than 200 people?”

“Does that make sense?” he queried further. “It doesn’t make sense. There is no common sense in that directive.” He said

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during his 23rd broadcast to the nation since Ghana recorded its first two cases of COVID-19 in March 2020 reimposed the ban on public gatherings as part of measures to contain the rise in COVID-19 cases in Ghana.

“Private burials with not more than 25 people can take place with the enforcement of the social distancing, hygiene and mask-wearing protocols”.
